A view of the new political frontier at Beleek on the Fermanagh/Donegal border. After the Anglo-Irish Treaty of 6th December 1921, the Irish Free State became a self-governing dominion within the British Commonwealth. The Free State, however, consisted of only 26 of the 32 counties of Ireland. The remaining six, on the other side of the Ulster border, remained under British rule.


The sound on this film is poor.
